Getting Into Grad School (COMPLETED)
Wednesday, March 14

If you're considering graduate school, we know you've probably got questions about the process, how to stand out and how to evaluate your options. Let us help you with some candid insider information, courtesy of a seasoned graduate school admissions professional. Our guest speaker will share everything from how to find the best fit to financing options and what admission folks are really looking for.  

Making a Difference in the Federal Government (COMPLETED)
Wednesday, April 4

Interesting job opportunities exist with federal agencies. If you haven't checked out these prospects lately, you just might be missing some unique career paths for liberal arts majors. Join the Alumni Career Network and our
special guest, Bernard Deazley '91, as he shares not only how you can make a difference in the federal government, but how to apply for federal jobs.

The Hidden Job Market: How to Get Hired
Wednesday, April 18
12 - 1 p.m. PST
Sign up for this webinar!
Less than 20 percent of the available jobs are advertised to job seekers.  Learn how you can send out fewer job applications and still get better results. We'll talk about using social media, structuring your job search for effectiveness, and how to network for the best result (hint: it's not through the Human Resources Manager).
